Three riveting matches the previous two years rate consideration when ranking the 10 greatest matches in US Open tennis history.

Serena Williams' three-set victory over Victoria Azarenka in last year's women's finals, Andy Murray's triumph over Novak Djokovic in the five-set 2012 men's final, and Djokovic's win in five sets over Roger Federer in the 2011 semifinals all provided compelling tennis.

However, just one of those matches made our top-10 list.
